One of the founding principles of the practice is that as Architects, we have developed the skills to work flexibly and innovatively with other groups whose expertise and interest overlap our own. Working with those that bring something new to the mix and challenge our pre-conceptions of what Architecture and Urbanism are keeps things interesting.
This year, we've started working more closely with an arts group that have been doing urban-community-based performance art and youth projects in the UK and abroad since 2010; The No Collective, on their project 'In Azerbaijan'.
Their work in Azerbaijan promotes youth participation in arts and culture in Azerbaijan through events, educational programmes and digital media. Our work for them involves an unusual and exciting shift from 'real' space to digital space – which is in our opinion as relevant to architecture as ever.
